3 College Sophomore

Administration: I don't participate much in the party scene at my campus, but in general they are encouraging of social lives and there's a lot a variation depending on your advisor, major, and even where you live (at least as a freshman) and who your RA is when considering the enforcement of school policies at LMU. Generally, from what I gathered, school policies are present enough to be worthwhile and lenient enough to not discourage students from enjoying their time in college.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Fair, most strict with freshman

3 College Freshman

Administration: I personally haven't had and bad experiences with Public Safety (P-Safe), but I've heard stories. Not listed above is the enforcement of the dismount zone, an area where between 8am-4pm everyday you can't ride a bike, skateboard, or scooter. It's a little ridiculous how much they focus on enforcing that vs. how much they focus on making sure students aren't driving recklessly on campus. They often seem to have very over the top reactions to little things. The campus, nonetheless, feels secure and I've never felt unsafe walking back from the library at 2 am.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

In spite of LMU's squeaky-clean Catholic school image, the students tend to get wild at times. Drinking, cheating, and speeding are all offenses with a various range of penalties. Speeding or other traffic violations result in a heavy fine, but more serious offenses like alcohol abuse and dishonesty land the offender in Judicial Affairs. Cheating is especially serious at LMU; the school employs a plagiarism investigator, and most professors at least threaten to use it.

At times, the campus seems overly strict. Public Safety officers are not lenient, so getting caught violating any of the University's numerous policies results in varying degrees of trouble. Students who end up in the Judicial Affairs system face fines, suspension, or expulsion. Some serious offenses include underage drinking, drug possession, drug use, cheating, reckless driving, and assault. Of these offenses, underage drinking and drug possession are the most common. Lesser offenses include phone or Internet harassment, minor theft, speeding, parking violations, and the general term "suspicious activity." Incidents involving violent crime are almost nonexistent. Due to the crackdown on alcohol and drug abuse on campus, students should exercise caution and common sense. Public Safety and Judicial Affairs are not known for being lenient.
